China's Qinshan nuclear power plant further expanded

China's Qinshan nuclear power plant, the first Chinese facility of its kind, has commenced on its further expansion work, according to sources.

Workers began to dig a hole for housing on of the two new generating units planned to add at the first phase of the plant early this month, and the work is expected to be completed by late July, according to a source from China National Nuclear Corp.

Each generating unit would have an installed capacity of one million kilowatts. They are expected to be deployed and put into practice by 2013 and 2014. Two pressurized reactors will be installed at Fangjiashan, Haiyan, on the northern coast of Hangzhou Bay, Zhejiang Province.

Qingshan Nuclear Power Plant, which began construction in 1985, started generating power in 1991. It has three phases, with the first phase construction wholly depending on the domestic engineers. By far, the plant has produced 31 billion kwh of electricity.
